5.0 out of 5 stars The EMI Years. Idlewild at their best., 15 May 2010

This review is from: The Collection (Audio CD)
As a long-term fan of this superb and criminally underrated band, I can safely say this is an excellent addition to the collection of old fans and new. The EMI years were an exceptionally fruitful time for the Scottish rockers, and this album shaves the cream off an extensive crop of awesome music. All bases are covered, from Hope Is Important's 'I'm Happy To Be Here Tonight' (which hinted at the folk leanings they would one day embrace), to the stirring 'Not Just Sometimes' from Warnings/Promises. If a newcomer to the band, buy this compilation with confidence; it is an excellent array of tracks which highlights their range and doesn't tail off. You fill find fewer Greatest Hits with as many classic tracks as this one. If an older fan, definitley still a worthy purchase at exceptionally good value, and the track notes from Woomble are a good read for the diehards. Idlewild. Quietly delivering the most consistent, credible and genuine British music for over a decade. A fine album to begin an extensive collection.
